  1. Voices in The Night - The gifted can sense life and mysterious energies with a twenty foot radius, strange and mysterious whispers echo through his mind telling him some details such as the type of radiation or life that is present.

Dimensional gates and portals cause the PC's eyes to glow and a trail of energy marks any dimensional gates that are within a 40 yard radius of the PC. They can follow such trails as blood hounds. 
  4. Makers Strength and Rage - The PC's fists glow with the light and fury of dead alien demon haunted stars and the PC gains +4 on all hand to hand attacks. But the energies linger after such attacks causing all within 30 feet of the gifted to make a radiation check as the alien radiations leech from the fool's hands attacking all.

Gills of The Gifted Ones - The PC is able within 1d4 rounds to adapt to any atmosphere as his body's army of nano gilled processors cope and straighten the soul's frame to the planetary conditions.

  7. Understanding Of The Kings - The fool erm gifted is able to understand any alien pieces of technology as the biological computer structures within their minds spins through billions of computations as to the understand of such alien devices. The gifted one gains bright blue and green pulsing veins upon their fore heads and +5 to their wisdom scores. There are those who whisper of the alien understand and weird aura about such individuals however. 
  8. Crimson Bands of the Old Kings - The flesh of the gifted is crisscrossed with strange coloured bands of crimson and red. This is actually an alien thing that feeds and nurtures its host disabling the need for sleep or food. The blessed no longer requires these and will vomit forth food. The blessed now only goes into a fifteen minute rest period. These bands allow the blessed to recover and heal 1d8 points of damage but each time this is used another bit of the fool's humanity withers away and they will receive some minor alien feature. - 1 on their Charisma attribute. 
  9. Countenance of the Kings - The gifted gains infravision and his face warps into an alien form, taste and hearing become close to an elf's and he is able to hear colors. The fool takes on a semi demonic countenance and is able to sense the relics and works of the Ancient kings within a 30 foot radius of him. Further all robotic and cybernetic servants of the Ancient Kings will function for this being. The blessed will also gain the eight fingers of the kings as well gaining +2 on Dexterity. -4 on charisma with humans and near human races however as the ancestral memories of these beings brings hatred and disgust at a genetic level across the centuries. 
  10. Robes Of The King - The gifted becomes an ancient king in form and deed, he gains 1d4 mutations from this list and another five minor mutations from the appropriate matrices. The Ancient Kings will call to their brother from across the stars and enlist his help in their fight against Chaos itself.
